Maruti Eeco: A brief overview
One of Maruti’s long serving models, the Eeco over the years has become a favourite among fleet operators and courier services for its ability to seat up to seven, cargo-van configuration and low running costs.
Maruti Suzuki upgraded the van to meet the new safety regulations in October last year before rolling out the BS6-compliant model, earlier this year. Unlike the rest of Maruti’s line-up that use the company’s new K Series petrol engines, the Eeco makes use of the older G-Series 1.2-litre unit owing to the car’s longitudinal rear-wheel drive layout. The engine develops 73hp and 98Nm of torque and comes paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard. Buyers also get the option of a factory fitted CNG kit on the van.
